Architectural Woodwork Institute-Georgia to sponsor WoodLINKS USA
The Architectural Woodwork Institute’s
Georgia chapter has recently decided to
dissolve as a result of declining mem-
bership in difficult economic times, and
will use the remainder of its money to
support the WoodLINKS USA student
AWI-Georgia’s remaining funds will
go toward paying state license fees for
up to six schools in that state, and to pay
for teachers to attend the International
Woodworking Fair in Atlanta.
WoodLINKS USA is currently looking for schools in Georgia interested in
becoming part of its national network. If
you know of a school that would be interested in becoming an AWI-sponsored
WLUSA site, send a letter of interest
and include a statement explaining how
the program would benefit. Information
should be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. For details,
go to www.woodlinksusa.org.
